Street Care is brought to you by Bright Mind Enrichment and Schooling (brightmindenrichment.org), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are a wellness-based education organization working to foster well-being, tenacity, curiosity, and creativity through community education. Utilizing tech for good, we create programs to help as many people as possible.
Street Care’s platform — built by homelessness and wellness experts — is full of clear, simple tutorials and guidance. If this is your first time volunteering, we’ll show you how to approach someone on the street, how to distribute healthy hygienic care bags, and how to find areas in your city with the greatest need. Every tool and lesson is infused with our wellness-based care approach, designed to improve the emotional and mental health as well as the physical well-being of homeless people.
With our expanding series of informational materials and instructional videos, and our mobile app, you and other Street Care volunteers can create meaningful connections with the homeless people in your area. With Street Care you can make a deep impact on the lives of those in need, in the following ways:
- Distribute care kits with the most useful necessities
- Share wellness and health tips that were created with homeless individuals in mind
- Work on goal reinforcement with homeless people, which is crucial for bringing about transformation
- Build a sense of community through an interactive framework for both volunteers and homeless people
- Benefit from and aid our research team’s ongoing efforts to create the most helpful information and tools
For Street Care, wellness encompasses caring for the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual health of a person. Our team has decades of experience working with homeless people. We work extremely hard to help you and those on the streets, offering (and creating!) the most up-to-date tools along with the most tried-and-true ones.
When you engage with homeless people through Street Care, you are providing the aid and sense of community that can truly help people to get off the streets.
